7 January 1920 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Fair strong frost S.W. which whereby cleared the ice off the streets + made walking much safer. Had a note from John Moir thanking me for my Xmas card. Betsy Heatlie, the Loan, very ill. Message to Wm Johnstone, Bowmont Villa. Walked down there. Gave Geo. Lunn chlor[oform] + found that the neck of his femur was fractured. Was much annoyed by losing a cheque for 21/- from Duncan for a [?] report on William Brockie for Scott. Prov. + also 2 drafts for 17/- + 15 from Aust. [illegible words]1.
